Title: 2016 HALLOWEEN PACK O' FUN ORDERS HAVE SHIPPED!
Post by: koduck on October 21, 2016, 11:58:16 AM
Greetings all!

Just writing to let everyone know that the Halloween Pack O' Fun orders have shipped! I don't want to give away any surprises yet, but I do need to mention one thing to keep your eyes on:

For this year's release, I wanted to up the "fun quotient", so I had a super rare card printed for the Halloween Pack o' Fun! There's only 5 of these cards made and 3 are randomly inserted in packs (I am planning to auction off the other two right before Halloween - more details to come).

For the 3 lucky people that find these cards in packs, you will each receive one original piece of concept art used in the creation of the Halloween Pack O' Fun cards! Simply send me a PM with a scan of your card and set #, and I will send you your artwork (please respond no later than December 31, 2016).

SPOILER ALERT! For those that just have to know, the title of the card is "Slithers" and you'll see that the regular version has a red snake on the side of the package. The rare version is missing the snake. For reference, here's a pic of what a portion of each card looks like:

(https://s16.postimg.org/kdkby2281/H16_Slthrs_Cards.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/kdkby2281/)

In addition to the rare card, there are also a number of other surprises, including a special prism card and bonus sketch cards. I'll post more in the next few days, but in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on your mailboxes!

-Neil

awesome news, Neil!  Funny, I've been really getting into the Halloween spirit this year. 

Just all the goofy, fun stuff.  Got my costume ready for that night, too.  Won't go out, but I'll have it on to greet all the kids that night, then all the drunk college kids that come out about an hour later!

Glad to hear they're starting to arrive! And thanks for the kind words everyone! Seems like a good way to keep the Halloween thing alive!

Speaking of which, I've been considering expanding these into a full fledged set for next year's release. That would mean at least 30 cards (maybe more) and possibly a boxed edition. I'd love to hear what everyone thinks of the idea.

Neil,

Now that the sets are arriving maybe you can expound on the total # of different titles.
A master list, so to speak.

The surface of the card has a special coating that gives it a prismatic effect. I'll post some pics once more people have received their packs.

I'll ask again, what's a prism card?

I can only speak for the one I got, which is numbered P1.  It is one of the titles I also received as a regular card, but with a little rainbowish prism overlay, kind of like the chrome atomic refractor pattern.  I seriously doubt that it will show up in a scan.

Neil, your Halloween Pack o' Fun arrived in California today and my son Josh had a blast crackin' packs!  Once again you've exceeded all expectations and made Halloween the Wackiest Holiday of the year.  Super art, super gags and just an incredible amount of Wacky love in every pack.  Thanks so much and my son scored a prism promo and it is awesome!

OMG these could not be more awesome! Absolutely brilliant work. My wife was happy to see that I got a dupe of 'Haunt Tamales' because she wants it!  :]

To echo Drono, how many regulars are there?

I got some doubles, so I'm ready for trading!

Looks like a lot of the packs are starting to arrive! That's great news. I'm going to start posting some pictures tomorrow, but in the meantime, here's a bit more information about this year's release:

Each pack comes with 4 cards plus a hand-drawn sketch card.  There's a total of 7 regular cards, plus a couple of different inserts: a limited edition prism card OR a "Monster Mashup" sketch card.

Here's a list of the titles:
"Slithers"
"Sugar Batties"
"Smarteries"
"Haunt Tamales"
"Krypt Kat"
"Hexey's Chocolate"
"Twitch"

As mentioned previously, there's also a extremely limited edition of the "Slithers" title. Only 5 were printed and 3 of them can be found in packs. Here's how to tell the difference between the regular version and the rare card:
(https://s9.postimg.org/6d9viynbv/H16_Slthrs_Cards.jpg) (https://postimg.org/image/6d9viynbv/)
(In other words, the rare card is missing the red snake at the base of the card).

Good news if you happen to find one in your pack: Message me with a scan of your card and your pack #, and I'll send you a free piece of concept art from the Halloween Pack O' Fun! I'll be auctioning off the last 2 "Slithers" cards as we get closer to Halloween (more info to come)!

Last but not least, I want to give a shoutout to Mark and Dave Stepper for their awesome concepts for "Smarteries" and "Haunt Tamales" (Mark) and"Twitch" (Dave). These two are among the very best writers in the biz!

Well, that's it for now! Hope you all find some fun cards in your packs!

I got mine this weekend already.   They look GREAT, Neil!!!  Great gags, great artwork, great professional look.

I would have bought more than one pack if I'd known there was more to the set.  Maybe someone can help me out with a spare Sugar Batties, Smarteries, and/or Hexey's Chocolate?  Since I don't have extras to trade, I'd be willing to purchase.

As for a full set of 30 next year, that would be better than a visit from the Great Pumpkin!  I'd definitely go for that, Neil!  The more Wackies the better!

    SLITHERS
    TWITCH

I am in this exact same boat, same needs, no extras, willing to buy these three...or trade other things for them, family members included.  :]
On second thought, I wouldn't do that...Halloween is scary enough without my family involved.

I'm sure they'll arrive this week. By the way, the post office says it can take up to 7 days for first class mail, so next time, I will definitely offer an expedited shipping option.

I'm just surprised everyone from around the country seems to have gotten theirs. Don't understand the delays getting here!

Not sure why that is, since all packs shipped at the same time. But I'm sure it will arrive this week.

My card packs have not arrived yet?! What's going on here?! All the trading will be done by the time I get mine. Hindsight, I should have paid for shipping confirmation or expedited shipping. Anyone else from Wisconsin not get theirs?

That question is better suited for the USPS rather than Neil. Just bear with the government. You know how it is.

Oddly enough, the stamps on my envelope are not even postmarked nor is there ANY print or mark on it from the USPS. Odd.

It seems to be a transient issue. I got this too, but kept trying and eventually got in. The old adage that insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results does not always hold true in regards to computers, especially where networks are involved.

I think you're right! And yes, it was a really good show, although only 2 of the original members are still with the band. Made me feel really old!

Got my set yesterday, they're awesome!  Thanks, Neil.

Funny story about the band, Kansas.  My Junior High School graduation group was headed
by these two girls who were obsessed with the band Kansas.   During our last year
there, which for us was 9th grade, all we would hear in the halls were Carry On My Wayward
Son and Dust in the Wind.  Non-stop.  Constantly.  Our little yearbook was loaded with Kansas
quotes.

Could have been worse, I suppose  :]  I didn't mind them until I keep
getting it drilled into my brain like Clockwork Orange.

At least the story is funny to me.... carry on, wayward sons!

Post by: koduck on October 27, 2016, 07:25:53 AM
Ha! Great (but tragic) story! There's no denying that song's been overplayed just a little bit. In fact, even the band seemed a bit tired of having to play it (probably for the 3 zillionth time)...

PS - Glad to hear your packs arrived!

I'm saw Kansas about twenty five years ago for the first time. The actually sounds better than their recorded material. Saw them again. One great band. No sign of them in Michigan yet either.

I had a friend in 7th  grade who had a Kansas obsession too.  Very similar experience.  I think on a field trip he was allowed to bring a small portable radio with a cassette deck, and I just remember hearing Point of Know Return maybe a dozen times that day.  This would have been fall '79 or spring '80 I believe.  The makings of an ear worm for sure.

You're welcome! So, P1 is the only prism title. Maybe next year there will be a P2 prism, but we'll see. Wish I had an extra monster mashup card to send you, but I'm fresh out. Maybe another forum member has an extra to trade?

Neil, I've got a question for you. Is the Sugar Botties sketch card based on the original art for what became Sugar Batties,or was it just an unrelated variation? I'd like to know so that Mitch can either put it on the Master Spreadsheet or not-and also just out of curiosity.

Been away from the forum for a while and realized I never thanked Neil for the wonderful set this year.  What fun!  Very much in the Wacky spirit.  And, you bet, I'd love a 30 card set, Neil, next year if you can pull it off.  Funny, but I didn't necessarily associate Wackys with Halloween as a kid, but the connection works well.  I think Christmas could tie in too (hint hint, Neil ;)).

Also on a related note, thanks a million, Neil, for helping me get the three cards that I needed to complete my set a while back! You're the greatest, pal!

Now if I can only just get the seven artists cards for Wacky Halloween Postcards 2010 for a reasonable price that is definitely not - I repeat, NOT - anything over $100.00, I'd have my Wacky Halloween Postcards collection complete!
